(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Sharjah the capital of arab tourism for 2015 is set to play a bigger role in promoting cooperation within oic member states in the tourism sector.

bringing spotlight on the 137 billion global islamic tourism market expo centre sharjah (ecs) for the first time is set to host the inaugural world islamic tourism summit & exhibition incorporating the second oic tourism fair in 2015.

sharjah which has been chosen as the capital of arab tourism for 2015 is set to play a bigger role in promoting cooperation within oic member states in the tourism sector.

an mou to bring the two events together at expo centre was signed last week by saif mohammed al midfa ceo of expo centre sharjah and dr el hassane hzaine director general of the islamic centre for development of trade (icdt) in casablanca. icdt is the subsidiary organ of the organisation of islamic cooperation which is entrusted with trade promotion and investment among the oic member states.

“this is a double honor for sharjah and expo centre. being chosen as the capital of arab tourism for 2015 at the arab tourism ministers’ summit in itself is an achievement and adds to the list of awards and accolades sharjah has received in the recent past.

“now the decision to organise the summit and the fair will literally be a feather in the cap for sharjah and ecs. this also reiterates the coordination and cooperation between ecs and oic which has resulted in expo centre hosting several oic events and playing host to several oic delegations and dignitaries” said al midfa.

“the world islamic tourism summit & exhibition partnered with the oic tourism fair aims to change this by strengthening cooperation and partnership between the oic member states in the field of tourism and encourage investment and partnership in the sector” added al midfa.
